BOOKREVIEW#71 Ariel (The Restored Edition) by Sylvia Plath

To live and to die with your life echoing steadfastly is to live forever and to die with glory. Regardless how enchanting or melancholy the waves be, to refuse to fade is mighty.  Yes, quote me! :D

Nothing ignites my soul more than submitting to Plath's world of words. If you are a fan of Sylvia Plath's haunting verses, you will enjoy reading through Ariel, a sea of thoughts on life, people and raw emotions turned into a garden of fragrant thorns.
One of my favorites from the collection

Sylvia Plath's famous collection, as she intended it.When Sylvia Plath died, she not only left behind a prolific life but also her unpublished literary masterpiece, Ariel. When her husband, Ted Hughes, first brought this collection to life, it garnered worldwide acclaim, though it wasn't the draft Sylvia had wanted her readers to see. This facsimile edition restores, for the first time, Plath's original manuscript -- including handwritten notes -- and her own selection and arrangement of poems. This edition also includes in facsimile the complete working drafts of her poem "Ariel," which provide a rare glimpse into the creative process of a beloved writer. This publication introduces a truer version of Plath's works, and will no doubt alter her legacy forever.This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

I fell in love with Sylvia Plath because of The Bell Jar (reviewed here). How about you? Any poetic recommendations?
